  • Village converted under shops with souvenirs and handicrafts: Interior and furniture, paintings, jewellery, painted glassware. There is a paddock with peacocks, hens and pigeons. There is a café and free toilets. It is interesting to visit.

  • Definitely a place to meet in Santiago, if you have some free time. Access via metro, red line, end station sense Los Dominicos. It's a very interesting regional handicrafts fair. If you have time to spare, I highly recommend.
